Rose Hip Oil (Pintrest)

We pride ourselves on using only natural ingredients in all our products and we thought we’d educate you on some of the things we use quite regularly. Let’s discuss Rose Hip Oil.

In terms of their origin, rose hips are essentially the seed pods of roses. They look like small, red, berry-sized seed balls left on the stems of the rose bush at the end of the season (assuming you leave the faded flower on the rose bush), and at first glance they resemble a crab apple. Birds love to eat them and generally they are edible, can be tart but are an excellent source of vitamin C.

Harvested from the seeds of the wild rose bush, this oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids that are known to do incredible things for our skin. Reputed to tighten pores and brighten skin, it can be used as a natural exfoliator when combined with baking soda and can be applied as an alternative for
moisturizing. Rose hip oil can also speed up the healing of wounds and bruises, relieve inflammation, and in our case, we use rose hip oil in our lip balm because of the oil’s analgesic properties where it helps relieve the pain caused by dry lips.

High in two essential fatty acids linoleic and linolenic, which are necessary for nutrition, but not produced by our bodies. We’ve had great success with our lip balm, soothing chapped and sore lips from their inherent pain, but
also in moisturizing them.

Be sure to check them out at our upcoming markets. We’re always happy to
answer any questions you may have about any of our products and our natural ingredients and look forward to meeting you!

Passion. Vision. Creation.

The Zero Waste Movement

There is a serious epidemic in our world today and it is caused by the amount of plastic we create and consume, and hence, how much we throw away. Our shorelines are lined with garbage, there are islands of floating plastic lost at sea, and statistically speaking, we are creating ten times more trash a day than we did a century ago. Of course, there are more people on earth right now than a century ago so more trash is inevitable, but it is this fact alone that has spurred us as a brand to be as minimal as possible with our output.
